Currently handle up to 94 926 request a minute for INCR with unix socket. Currently handle up to 73 404 request a minute for INCR with network socket. PHP + redis (phpredis extension) : 52 572 PHP + fsock directly: 53 028

    LoadModule statx_module modules/

  5. Then set a location directive for activating the handler

    SetHandler statx-handler
